However, the singer's team is yet to release an official statement on the new development.

Recall that the former G-Worldwide artiste was hauled to court for allegedly violating the terms of his contract after he launched his own record label, Flyboy INC.

Kiss Daniel VS G-Worldwide

On October 13, 2017, Kiss Daniel went public with his decision to exit G-Worldwide, after four years in the record label. The singer subsequently set up his personal imprint – Flyboi Inc. – and has released a debut single titled ‘No do.’

But G-Worldwide has instituted a law suit against his actions. The company has dragged him to court, accusing him of “taking steps to appoint a new manager, solicit for bookings, and has continued to negotiate and enter performance agreements in respect of the songs from the album New Era, and Evolution which is set to be released soon containing singles such as Yeba, For You, Senorita, Sofa and others, produced under the contract, including using the stage name ‘Kiss Daniel’ without the company’s prior consent and permission.”

A statement made available to Punch via G-Worldwide’s lawyers, Calmhill Partners, states that a Federal High Court in Lagos had on November 30, granted an order that all parties should maintain the status quo under the contract. The company further warned the general public against contracting any business with Kiss Daniel.

The court order signed by Hon. Justice Babs Kuewumi, partly reads, “It is hereby ordered as follows that in the interim both parties are ordered to maintain the status quo ante Bellum under the recording contract pending the hearing of the motion on notice.” The case was adjourned till January 9, 2018.

Meanwhile, the statement by Calmhill Partners, which was signed by Aso Kalu Etea, warned that anyone who conducted business with Kiss Daniel pending the determination of the suit risked being held in contempt of court.

Pulse spoke with a representative of Flyboy Inc, who declined to give his name. Our source maintained that he only saw the court order online, but they haven’t received anything. “The status quo remains. Kiss Daniel’s company is Flyboi Inc., and that’s what it is.”

The singer was finally served court papers by his former record label and according to the label's reps, the court papers were pasted on Daniel’s gate on Friday, December 15, 2017.
